  • Always avoid slouching.
  • Use a lumbar backrest for postural support when needed.
  • Only use a backrest that is comfortable, and / or recommended by your health care provider.
  • Take periodic breaks from sitting. Stand, and take a short walk whenever possible.
  • Stretch, and exercise as recommended by your health care provider.
  • Feet should contact the floor completely when sitting.
  • Use an adjustable footrest if feet dangle.
  • You should have 2-3 inches of clearance between the back of your knees, and the front edge of the seat. A chair that is too deep reduces lumbar support, can contribute to slouching, and could lead to pain.
